Little D is 3

I’ve been photographing Little D since he was born, and let me tell you, those photos were awful lol! Thank goodness his mama has been my friend since high school or I don’t think she would have ever asked me to photograph her kids again!  I can definitely see my growth when I look back through their photos.

This photo session was to capture Little D turning three.  It was crazy hot out this day.  Basically, last summer it either rained or was 100 degrees. We met at Homestead Park since it’s so close to both of us.  I also wanted to meet there so we could still use the covered bridge if it rained.  Little D was not into having his photo made at first!  We finally got some adorable smiles out of him though.  You’ll see little brother, Ellis, in the family shots.  I believe he was two months old at the time.

That orange couch they’re sitting on is one of my favorite props!  It sits in my sun room and has a matching chair and ottoman that I also love to use.  We recently looked at buying me a new car that was beautiful, but that couch wouldn’t have fit in the back.  You know you’re officially a prop junkie when you turn down a fabulous new car because all of your props won’t fit into the back!

Carter {3}

It never fails, every time I meet with Lori and Carter, it’s 100 degrees outside! This day was no exception!

Lori picked a location in Dayton, Ohio that I had never been before. We met at the Cox Arboretum MetroPark. It was really beautiful there, but tricky to find shade since many of their flowers require direct sun. We had a hard time getting Carter’s attention away from the ponds, because there were turtles everywhere. He just kept pointing and saying “turtle turtle.”  You can tell that’s what he’s doing in a couple of the photos below.

Carter always makes me work for his photos lol! It’s worth it though, because he’s just the cutest little guy! I always get a ton of compliments after I post his photos. I love all of the candid shots of him! He has a big personality inside that little body!

Lori and I graduated from high school together. We never really kept in touch, aside from social media, until she had Carter and started allowing me to photograph him. Now, we see each other 2-3 times a year. I know that still isn’t much, but it’s always great to see her and catch up! I only have one request Lori, if you have another child let’s shoot for October so it isn’t so hot out lol!
